No. 224

Ben Siegler went to cosmetology school with the intention of cutting heads for a living, but he wound up unsatisfied with the pay. He was working at an uncle’s pizza parlor in Arizona when Jimmy Vosika, a family friend, told him he had a job waiting at his company, ShopJimmy.com, should he move back to Minnesota. Within two months, Siegler was back home. He is one of six employees who coordinate the shipping of parts that have been retrieved from damaged televisions from ShopJimmy’s warehouse to a distribution center. After work, he and his co-workers play softball in a community league. “I see myself being here for quite some time,” he says. —April Joyner
